What are the differences between using a manual toothbrush and an electric toothbrush?

The main difference between a manual toothbrush and electric toothbrush is that obviously one moves on its own while the other requires you to move it. But, both can be equally effective if used for the appropriate amount of time and done with proper technique – two to three minutes for two to three times per day.

While everyone certainly does not need an electric toothbrush, we recommend electric toothbrushes to those who aren’t always consistent with brushing for this recommended time. Happy Brushing!
